Is this really necessary? Leave them alone and they will be happy.

And the point of the study is for?

Where was that job when I was looking for work? Sip vodka, watch grass grow, paint dry and kangaroos paws. Lonely job, but someone has to do it.

Yes the Aussies could have told them.

All Australians know that kangaroos use both paws we didn't need a Russian study to tell us that

And the purpose of this study is . . . . ? What a waste of money.

What a waste of money.....should be using that money for more constructive projects.

What a stupid study.
I have kangaroos frequent my fence all the time and I can tell you they use their left and right paws equally.Kangaroos are lovely animals.
The so called Russian researchers motive for this stupid useless study is obviously to enable them to stay in Australia by extending their Visa

Wow. One heck of a senseless study. Wonder who funded it?
